This £4 million initiative is funded by, Comic Relief with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the UK’s Devolved Administrations to support organisations that are working to end violence and abuse experienced by women and girls across the UK.
Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations. Up to 3 million women and girls across the UK experience rape, domestic violence, stalking and other violence each year and every week 2 women are killed by a current or ex-partner. There are some women and girls who are particularly vulnerable to violence, including women who have multiple or complex need such as poor mental health, substance misuse and those who are homeless.
For this reason, this funding initiative will focus on meeting the needs of women who are at risk or experiencing violence AND who have multiple and complex needs.
Proposals are welcome from across the UK. The initiative expects to make up to 40 grants of between £60,000 and £120,000 for between one and three years. Grants may be larger than £120,000 to those bidding in partnership with others.
